Event description

Description

2018 sees the relaunch of our monthly ‘In Business’ events programme, an excellent opportunity for you as a Wirral Chamber of Commerce member to keep up to speed with all the key issues influencing the growth of your business and opportunities for support. Wirral Chamber have joined forces with over 40 strategic partners that will provide excellent speakers and debate panellists across a diverse range of issues including international trade, digital infrastructure, skills, health and cyber crime.

Our first event on January 25th 2018 will challenge ALL Wirral Chamber members to make 2018 the year to re-visit their plans for trading internationally. Experts will be on hand from our partners Turkish Airlines, NatWest, UK Export Finance and LV Shipping who will give an insight into the excellent connectivity for visiting overseas markets, advice on funding, negotiating payment terms, and getting your goods in or out of the country safely and efficiently.

Many businesses across Wirral provide products and services all over the world. Opportunities exist across a broad range of sectors, both in traditional, established markets such as Europe and the US, and the high-growth economies across Middle East, South America and Asia.

International Trade is not just for bigger businesses. The number of small UK firms exporting has increased by over 10 percent in both manufacturing and services over the last 5 years.
